Re: Projector Headlights

I just did this (http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=233082) in my '04. It turns on the HID's for the DRL's. Since the HID's are powered through a relay, they are at full power. Need a...

Re: Delay when put in drive

Not normal. Check your fluid level.

That's a common issue with the fluid is low, or hasn't been changed in a very long time. Could be a more serious issue like solenoids going bad, but the first...

Re: Here's a "simple" question about wheel bearings

Plan to spend a couple hours hammering on it too. I spent close to 6 hours on mine without having a torch. Then took it to a shop, and it took them about an hour on each side with a torch.

Yeah, they are literally probably 5 times brighter than the stock reflectors. The projectors come with H1 HID bulbs, ballasts, relay harness and everything except a high beam splitter.

Re: 02-05 saturn vue All 4 headlights on?

It's from December 2015, so it's not that out of date. How often do they actually make changes to those laws anyway?

Here's another that has a little more detail, and is probably more up-to-date....

Re: Muffler Deleter or Something To Make My Vue Loud

Most NA engines require some resistance in the exhaust for optimum performance. Take out that resistance and you'll kill the efficiency of the engine.

Re: 05 Vue won't start, no check engine light after hitting deer

I did almost this exact same thing with my old VW Fox when it got a pinhole leak in one of the radiator hoses. Blew the head. You could tell from the oil that coolant had gotten into it though.

Re: 02-05 saturn vue All 4 headlights on?

The only laws I'm aware of limit you to 4 headlights, or 6 total light sources. (i.e. 4 headlamps and 2 foglamps)

Re: Does anyone in here know how to do the 4 headlight mod?

I always forget, the Vue headlamp system is reversed polarity.

This is why I ended up switching to the harness. The unused relay is still on a shelf in my garage somewhere.

Re: Does anyone in here know how to do the 4 headlight mod?

That's how I started out. Then the Vibe got totaled, and I just pulled the HID harness from it and re-purposed it.

All you really need though is a relay and a couple of wires. Take the positive...

Re: 06 AWD v6 vue price worth

I agree with starting at 3k. Hold hard at 4k, and don't go over.

Typical mileage for that year model according to KBB is around 136k.

I've heard that you can reset/re-train the electronic throttle, but have yet to find a method that works on the Vue.

My guess would be a sensor not reading correctly though. When was the last time...

Re: Does anyone in here know how to do the 4 headlight mod?

This relay should do what you're thinking, but the price is a little steep for what you're getting IMHO.

Re: 02-05 saturn vue All 4 headlights on?

I just tapped a relay into the high beams that will send power to the low beams when they are on.
